Elvis Costello’s epic 1993 song cycle with string quartet performed by operatic tenor Sergio Cepeda and Neo Camerata. $30 in advance, $35 at the door.
Mark Landson’s Neo Camerata launches a project to bring to wide attention the profoundly moving early 1990’s song cycle collaboration between Declan McManus, widely known as Elvis Costello, one of the era’s greatest pop rock singer-songwriters, and the Brodsky String Quartet, one of Britain’s leading classical string quartets of the time.
“The Juliet Letters”, song cycle for voice and string quartet, was released as an album in 1993. It was inspired by real-life letters written to Shakespeare’s fictional Juliet Capulet. The work takes us on a journey of imagined correspondence of enduring love, family disputes, chain letters, and suicide notes.
Formed in 2003, Neo Camerata has performed at the Cannes Film Festival, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and on the bill with orchestras and pop singers.
“Cave Without A Name” in Boerne, TX provides an amazing concert experience. The cave is located north of San Antonio and has incredible acoustics and ambience. Please Note: the cave has access only via stairs, and is not recommended for those unable to walk the equivalent of several flights of stairs.
